Fortunately I had recovered by the 25th when we went to Coromandel, we were later going up this year and so missed most of the lovely Autumn leaves but there were still some patches of bright colour along the way.
The reason for the visit was for me to teach my count thread mat, " Threads from Jane" This mat is stitched on 30 count linen which Jane Van Keulen has dyed with matching threads see her website-
It was a very enjoyable workshop as I knew everyone taking the class so a reunion with old friends.
We had extra time away so lots of talk about stitching and sharing of ideas with two special friends..
This mat that I taught, this was stitched by my friend Maree in a previous class the colours are lovely and the photo does not do justice to them
